Journalism / law
Spanish term or phrase: falló
From an article concerning the gay marriage movement and its progress through Spanish and American courts.

Article context: "Hacerlo, falló el tribunal, "no tiene una mayor finalidad que la de rebajar la condición y la dignidad humana de gais y lesbianas en California y determinar que sus relaciones y las familias que conforman son inferiores a las de las parejas de sexo opuesto". "

Overall, not sure how to begin this long sentence.

agree  Richard Hill: Yes. The asker says she's “not sure how to begin this long sentence”. Perhaps, ‘To do so, “the court ruled”, would achieve nothing more than to…’. Or ‘The sole purpose of doing so, the court ruled,…’
